Suffering from allergies is one of the most widespread chronic diseases affecting Americans. When an allergy is suspected, only an allergy test can identify what you are allergic to and what’s causing your symptoms. Allergy skin testing helps to identify the specific allergens that are triggering your reaction, and allows your physician to diagnose and treat your allergy problem.
Thankfully, allergy testing is now simpler, needle-free and painless. The new testing procedure consists of introducing small amounts of allergens into the skin of your back using non-invasive, plastic testing applicators and then observing your skin’s unique response to the allergens. You can be tested for several different environmental allergens at one time. Your skin’s reactions to these allergens are measured after 15-20 minutes. The level of your body’s reaction to these allergens can indicate your sensitivity to a particular allergen. The test results are available immediately, therefore eliminating the need to wait for lab reports. Your doctor can then recommend the best treatment option for your specific allergies.
